Jewish Family Services is welcoming our community’s local Holocaust survivors to an outing which is funded by a grant Jewish Family Services received from the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) through the Center for Advancing Holocaust Survivor Care. The grant is designed to increase socialization opportunities for survivors, especially with each other, provide caregivers and children of survivors with support, and give survivors the opportunity to leave their legacy by documenting their testimonies. To date, 17 survivors have been interviewed and 15 have shared their stories via video.
